The pandemic has sparked a transformation in how health care is delivered and how people access it, with more and more tools accessible for virtual care. We have dedicated $240.5 million to increasing access to virtual care in the pandemic. But we want to and will help ensure that the fast acceleration of care into virtual models is thoughtful and delivers the quality of care Canadians deserve.
A re-elected Liberal government will:
- Provide $400 million over 4 years to build on the growing demand for virtual care that arose during the pandemic.
These dollars will help to cover digital infrastructure, and other system improvements, to support more virtual care so that Canadians can access things like virtual medical consultations with doctors and nurses or remote monitoring.
